Researchers and political decision-makers agree that collaboration is a key competence of future engineers
as a prerequisite for tackling the world's complex problems and thus contributing to meeting the UN's
sustainable development goals. However, as we show in the paper, collaboration is often not assessed in
engineering education. In this extended abstract, we frame the problem of assessing collaboration skills
among engineering students. In the paper, we first introduce the problem, then we present the field through
a state-of-art in relation to assessment and then present our methodological design for our upcoming study
of collaborative assessment in engineering education. This extended abstract is a work-in-progress.
